Features We Love:

The Ultimate Dynamic Microphone

The SD-1 is a studio-quality dynamic microphone that's been tailored to be as versatile as possible. Suitable for singing, broadcast vocals and voice-overs, instruments and can even be used for live music applications. The SD-1 offers a detailed yet close-mic tone. It sounds great for spoken word and podcasts and because of its dynamic capsule it also works well for loud singing and screaming and it won't clip or distort as your source gets louder. It's also suitable for use on acoustic instruments and even drums, making this an excellent all-round microphone for the studio and stage.

Shape Your Sound

The built-in low-cut and enhanced articulation boost switches let you sculpt what the mic captures, ideal for getting the best sound between different types of vocalists and using on different acoustic instruments.

Enhanced Protection

The internal shockmount and built-in windscreen protect your recording from unwanted rumbling and popping, ensuring you get the best quality recording possible.

SD-1 Apollo Channel Strip Presets

Universal Audio Apollo users can take advantage of the included SD-1 presets that give you tailored EQ and compression settings for radio voice, singing and instruments.

Who Is It For?

As a versatile mic, the SD-1 is great for many situations. Podcasters, radio broadcasters, and small studios will love its rich tone, while larger studios, producers, engineers, and venues will love the SD-1's versatility and precise sound.
